@R0NIIN: Congrat on the gifts, glad to hear you enjoying the Kinect plus those games, I wish you a save trip to Turkey :D, and good luck with your resolutions make them happen.
Happy New Years to all my friends on Gamspot!
It's been a crazy end of 2010, for me and I haven't been able to post any new blogs recently. In December I bit the bullet and purchased Kinect for the 360. I was a little hesitant due to the lack of games on launch and what Microsoft has in the plans for the device in 2011. However, I do have a vice and that is I love new gadgets. I bought Dance Central and Kinect Adventures was bundled with the device. All my doubts have been thrown out the window, I love Kinect! That's right; I said it, I LOVE KINECT!! I played on my birthday with a bunch of friends and we were playing teams of Adventures and Dance Central battle off's and it was a ton of fun. I can only imagine what Microsoft has in store for Kinect and what they are willing to pump into it.
I also went out and bought the HTC Windows Phone 7. I'm heading to Turkey in January and I didn't want to bring a computer or tablet in fear they were lost or stolen. This way I can still play games, earn achievements and keep the phone on me at all times. So far the game library is pretty good. I've purchased Tower Bloxx: New York, Project Sunburst, Revolution, Rise Of Glory, Fruit Ninja, Flight Control and Flowerz. I recommend Rise of Glory to any one who has the WP7. It is in my opinion the best game out so far. It really shows the power of the WP7. Anyone who wants to add me to XboxLive who also has a WP7 feel free to do so. XBL: R0NIIN
Games I bought or received for gifts:
Batman: Game of the Year Addition
Borderlands: Game of the Year Addition.
Fallout New Vegas
I've also made some goals for 2011 some in actual life and others within the gaming world. My life goals I'll keep private but the ones in the "gaming world" I'll share. First: I would like to hit a minimum 75,000 in Xbox Live gamer score by the end of the year. I believe I can hit more but I'll keep it obtainable for now not knowing what my social and work life will be. I also want to have my games list completion percentage to be over 65%. I believe all of these goals are easily achievable.
Games I'm looking forward to in 2011: Angry Birds: WP7, Gears of War, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, Lego: Star Wars...............there are more I just can't think of.
Here's hoping the gaming industry is as good as 2010!
